The Washing of the Spears.


This remarkable history.Not only is this the book to end all books on the trgic confrontation.It is a colourful,yet commendable fair account of the trials,errors and triumphs of Imperial policy in Natal on the eve of the Boer wars:the first unprejudiced analysis of the British-Boer involvement with the Zulu nation.The definitive account of a bloody and trgic event:the rise of the Zulu nation under the great ruler Shaka,and its fall under Cetshwayo in the Zulu war of 1879.
